FBI Agent Jim Markovich from the Buffalo Field Office talked to 100-plus SUNY Fredonia Upward Bound students and their parents recently about how to protect their personal safety when using social media. Markovich discussed issues related to cyberbullying, child predators, Internet security, Facebook and cell phones. Upward Bound is a federally-funded pre-college program designed to help students complete high school and succeed in higher education. SUNY Fredonia administers one of the 940 Upward Bound programs in the nation and provides services to approximately 100 students annually.
